The Son Of Man Filter

In recent years, taking a mirror selfie with face covered by phone has swept across Instagram stories. The hidden face behind the phone — often those with an apple — brings about a sense of wonder.

The Son Of Man by Rene Magritte was a self-portrait that coincidentally has his face hidden behind a green apple. 

Bridging the relation between both, an Instagram AR filter was created based on the painting by one of the top Surrealist artists.
